By Vice Adm. Matthew L. Nathan, U.S. Navy surgeon general and chief, U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery.
""Earlier this month I wrapped up my first visit to our research facilities in Southeast Asia. I visited the U.S. Naval Medical Research Center-Asia (NMRC-Asia) in Singapore, the U.S. Naval Medical Research Unit No. 2 (NAMRU-2) in Phnom Penh and the Health Affairs Attaché office at the U.S. Embassy in Hanoi. I was truly impressed with what I saw and I’d like to share with you some highlights of my trip."
